DUSD to Appoint Replacement Trustee

The Dublin Unified School District (DUSD) board will appoint a two-year replacement for trustee Joe Giannini, instead of asking the Alameda County Registrar of Voters for a special election. The board met Oct. 22, voting 3-1 to appoint.

The board established an application process, appointed a two-trustee committee to develop questions, and determined that the interviews will be held publicly at a board meeting. Sentiment on the board was against having a special election, because it would leave the board without a fifth trustee for approximately one year. The election would have to follow a certain timeline to be held in consolidation with other elections, to keep costs down.
